and a moral obscenity. on august 20, 2012, president obama said that the use of a, quote, whole bunch of chemical weapons in syria would be a red line. now almost exactly a year later tens of thousands of lives have been lost. secretary kerry now says the president is talking with members of congress and key allies to make an informed decision on a response. meanwhile, half of americans can't even find the country on a map. that is not an exaggeration. recent polls show overwhelmingly that americans simply do not want to get involved in syria. it should be noted also that secretary kerry's tough language came before inspectors from the united nations could return any findings from syria. those inspectors ran into some danger of their own while examining one of alleged sites of this chemical attacks. fred? >> reporter: it was a pretty tough day for the u.n. weapons inspectors but they said also quite a productive day. their car came under fire right after they left from the hotel they were staying at. they said all of this happened in the buffer zone between the area controlled by the

as president obama. >> yeah, joe. david cameron really shocked because it was defections within his own party that caused ta defeat and if president obama decides to take action against the assad regime it appears he will be doing so without the support of our two strongest european allies. after an eight-hour debate the british parliament voted to reject a limited strike against syria. >> why is it that our allies in the middle east like saudi emirates, qatar, kuwait and others, cannot take military action, why does it fall on us yet again? >> put simply, is it in britain's national interest to maintain an international taboo about the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield, my argument is question it is. >> i take a question from the scottish national party. >> does he know if there are any plans over the last few days for any military action before next week, planned at all against syria? >> i obviously can't discuss the details of potential action in detail in front of this house, but i can tell the house that american president and i have had discussions that have been reported in th
. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an

constituencies are even worse when president obama won this sweeping electoral college victory in 2012. other republicans look at this map and say look at all this red in america, we kept our majority in the house, we have 30 governorships. some republicans argue it's not because the nominee was too conservative, they argue the nominee made the mistake of moving to the center. that's the debate in the party now. we do know in 2012 we know from the election the reason the president was able to win and win so convincingly, look at this. republicans lost the latino vote by 44 votes in 2012, lost the women vote by 11 points, lost the younger votes by 23 points. now there's new evidence among another key constituency the republicans are suffering. this is from polling from stan greenberg, a democrat but republicans don't dispute the elections. that group now over 65, their favorable opinion of the republicans party is only 28%, down 15 points from just a couple years ago. ask the elderly how are you going to vote in 2014, 46% say they'll vote republican. the republicans in 2010 had a 21-point adva

as the drumbeat to war with syria gets louder. wall street suffered its worst day since june as the obama administration clearly laid the groundwork for a possible military strike on syria. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable. >> market analyst todd schoenberger is "outfront" with us tonight. thank you for being here. how much of this market drop had to do with what you heard from the vice president and the president and the administration about oil in the region? >> quite a bit because it's a grave concern for everybody at wall street. it was top of mind when we heard about it from biden but now when we're hearing about the war drums that are beating today and we can only anticipate that president obama will be making a decision, probably by tomorrow and even by thursday, clearly there's a lot of uncertainty tonight on wall street. >> looking ahead how high do you t

clinton. senator elizabeth warren and president obama round out the top four. governor christie's position dips when only republicans are polled, drops to eighth behind the list of candidates behind the party's presidential nomination in 2016. first thing is first, what on earth is a temperature meter or whatever we're calling this? >> yes. so they call this the feeling thermometer. we're into feelings and we ask you how do you feel about these politicians. so 0 is stone cold. 100 is burning up. and we saw there the president coming in fourth. the most surprising number in that poll, you mentioned senator elizabeth warren, now the senior senator from massachusetts, coming in at number 3. the other thing that really struck us, how far christie fell when you ask just republicans, interestingly enough number one, when you ask just republicans, paul ryan, mitt romney's running mate and then rand paul, ted cruz, jeb bush, scott walker of wisconsin, all coming in before christie. that points to the governor's real challenge. he has this amazing national popularity and following, on the cover of
we're out there willy-nilly. >> reporter: that was president obama just days ago assuring the american public that the national security agency was not breaching the trust of its citizens. but a new report out today by "the washington post" may raise new concerns. after combing through the trove of documents leaked by former nsa analyst edward snowden "the post" reports the nsa has broken privacy rules thousands of times each year since 2008. "the post" says most of the incidents involved surveillance of americans and foreign intelligence targets on u.s. soil in ways that violate the program's rules. of those incidents, "the post" report most were unintended and many involved failures of due diligence or violations of standard operating procedure such as when an area code mixup caused the nsa to intercept a large number of calls from wrau washington, d.c., instead of egypt. the nsa response was quick. overnight the nsa released a statement, "nsa's foreign intelligence surveillance activities are continually audited and overseen internally and externally. when nsa makes a m
to do here, it sounded a lot like the position that president obama has. better that than nothing. is that right? >> welcome i don't know the president obama will admit that what we've got is a total failure. the worst thing we can do is nothing. because the current system will just give us more of the same. more legal immigrants. it is the equivalent of amnesty. the senate has passed a big comprehensive bill that i think advances the ball down the field from. but i think it is a long way from perfect. and republicans in the hou have the opportunity to take that as a starting point and give us a really first-rate immigration reform that will get control of the borders seriously. that will surely enforce the people who have visas to come here, that we make sure that ey we when they are supposed to. you know, about 40 40% of people came here on a legal visa. so we are talking about controlling the border and we need to do both. neil: david just said that republicans have to move on us because of the very least, it is going to hit them with latino voters if they don't. we make of tha

moved behind the scenes to quash the campaign and are insisting that obama not be pressured as he mulls to nominate. >> the president does not like people trashing those he is seriously considering for big jobs. he plainly likes larry summers. there has been a campaign against summers within the senate. you had a significant block of senate democrats who were signing their names to a letter, essentially endorsing yellen. democratic senators have publicly raised questions about whether larry summers would fit in that job. and the president doesn't like being hemmed in. we have seen this at his press conferences. saw it when he went to the hill and talked to democrats and defended pretty forcefully larry summers as somebody who had helped him a good bit, who has a lot to offer. he has been -- summers has been believed to be the front-runner for the job. don't know to what extent that is still the case. but the president doesn't like to be dictated in these sort of scolded his democratic colleagues. >> we have been looking at this, this opposition in the senate and other places that have b
